Design submitted by NickMusky, re-formatted for functional guidelines.

Astonish recruiters with your lively appearance and core competencies with Nevus.

It’s a custom made 3 page resume that has a recommendations page and a matching two-sided cover page.

If you’re a bartender, go ahead and replace the existing image for your own personal logo so the manager at the bar can see what you look like. Scroll through our sample verbs list, then pick and choose what power words are most readily applicable to your personality.

  • All of the text can be re-formatted to wrap in line with your picture too.
  • All dates are formatted properly along the right of the document with a cursive style font used for its headings.

    Originally designed for photographers, this is a classy minimalist layout built for highlighting adobe suite proficiency levels through charts and boxes as seen below.

    Drag the vertical line to the right to specify adjustments. Luckily, no fancy video or photoshop editing is needed to finalize everything. Any version of MS Word will suffice.

    It’s a lot easier to manipulate than the old style, especially if I’m trying to make it look more modern. it’s a lot easier to maintain (I don’t have to worry about revealing too much personal info everywhere, every line is easily editable).

    It’s very clean line: no more uneven pressure lines under each heading (a major peeve). Second – everything is exactly one-column in format; which helps eliminate any possibility or “fluff” to bulge on either side like crazy does so many other templates do.

    I *have* made it myself without any “fancy” templates – all of the styles are *legal* and “not funambulist.” the text formats are clean with modern clear types – my previous resume was filled with text/glyphs that were difficult to read/not sure were even presentable.

    It saves me 2400 characters, and is a very functional looking resume. It is simple to read, and not to over understand. The dark blue is a nice shade of blue, that transitions well into the rest of the resume.

    It saves me 2400 words, since I don’t have to give a detailed background of my PhD and my teaching experience and my research experience if I don’t want to, and it saves me 78 lines, since I don’t have to list every course I took and every conference I attended if I don’t want to.

    That means less color without sacrificing readability or complexity (a must with modern digital citizens). Second is that LESS colors = more black space which allows me to put **more relevant information** on paper while still keeping things interesting via graphic boundaries etc.

    I think the design is very clean and minimal, it stands out from the rest of the pile while still being familiar and inviting. I like that it starts on the blue side, since I am often asked about my resume before even being asked about my qualifications.

    My old resume was the same boring word doc that most people (including me) found and hated. Even after countless hours of tweaking and updating the template, I still found myself looking at the dreaded resume in the job board forum.

    It looks clean – something that is difficult to do in most templates or online (you have popups/fancy stuff going on). My name + info are at top center making it easy readable even when small text size.

    I’ve been using a sans serif font with a thin and carefully spaced line (Campbell Milan, 14pt). I tried to use action words to describe what I did instead of just bullet points. And finally, I combined the contact information from my previous resume and added it to the top of the new one.

    I think it looks clean. It really emphasizes accomplishments – you see the impact you had on the company instead of the task. This is important because you always want to be perceived as an achiever, and this helps you.

    It looks so neat and is visually appealing. Everything just fits together perfectly. It’s easy to read, and all the information is communicated with clarity. I’m mainly concerned with two things: I put a lot of detail in my job descriptions.

    I didn’t have a specific field/job I wanted to apply for so it’s been a bit wider than my normal CV (though I focus on a specific niche). I’ve been doing a lot of stuff outside of what I’d consider a typical job.

    It looks so professional, I don’t want to ruin it now that I’m in the process of making it. Number one, it’s very consistent from one job to the next. I don’t have to worry about if my position on an engineering staff is going to be confusing to read.

    The main thing I like about it is that it looks clean and doesn’t fall into the same general category of templates I’ve seen before (i. e. it doesn’t look too fancy or confusing). It also happens to be very similar in style to one I personally found online.

    First off all pronouns are not necessary in your job description like they actually should be (sir/ma’am), so most companies don’t see it that way at ALL – hence why you DO have to get rid of them once per company if just copying from Word is enough](#purge).

    It eliminates the need to. I frequently hear, for example, that a one page resume is too long. This is because in most cases, most candidates will not have a degree, or other specialized training.

    First off, it looks like every other word you see in google results – clean & simple. – It’s responsive which is nice because if your device (like me) doesn’t have full screen keyboard integration yet then use ‘smaller’ size text to fit on one page.

    There are a lot of graphical components to it, which I think is a nice touch. It feels very readable, and is visually appealing to the eye. it is a representation of what my experience actually looks like. I have tried to make it as easy to read as possible, while still providing enough information to be relevant.

    I have noticed a few trends in recent years when looking at other peoples’ resumes, and I like mine to stand out. First and foremost, it’s visually appealing. I’m a bit obsessive over my resume design (I think I’m usually a bit too “creative” with it) and I want it to look good.

    First off, I’m always worried that my resume looks too much like a sales pitch – it should be enough that the employer has to look at it to see if it’s even worth taking to the next step. for some reason, my resume seems more creative and less like a standard description of a engineer.

    Not many colors or graphics in general (I prefer old school clean templates with no flair). Second is that while ATS are getting smarter every year they aren’t quite there yet as far i’m aware <75%.

    I think the blue color is nice, modern and not overdone. It’s not a flashy thing, it’s not overwhelming. It’s subtle, it’s sophisticated. And in the modern world, it’s simply the current trend. I like that it’s a functional resume.

    I think the blue is classic, simple yet eye-catching, and the circles are simple yet dynamic. Add in the fact that it is a single image and you have an amazing looking resume.I chose a single color for my resume because I like the results in Word when you apply a color.

    I think the first is the way it gets you noticed quickly, in a good way. No flashy designs, no weird typefaces, just a very straightforward, uncluttered template. No “fancy” bullets, you have bullet points. I think that’s a good start.

    It’s clean, simple, and it’s aesthetically pleasing. It’s also in color, which I’m told is a big plus. My first reason for the change is that I find that ATS systems don’t read well when printed out, especially when printed in full color. My old resume was printed in grey printer paper.

    It saves me plenty of space, since I don’t have a lot of white space now, and it ensures that my weight is aligned directly under my name. It also helps to ensure that each of my tasks gets its own line, and the one with the most weight gets the entire point-based breakdown it needs.
